Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.7 Iatkos Distro On A Acer Aspire 5100

1st I had to change the wireless adapter. I bought 1 on Ebay 3.99 Broadcom 4311
The original Atheros was not supported (or at least Ive found none)

To start I plugged in a USB mouse. Seems to load faster with it during install and boot sometimes (Dont Know Why)

1.  Boot your 5100 Select F12 during BIOS screen and select your Iatkos Disk
2.  When the 1st screen comes up Click the button to continue
2.  At the 2nd screen Welcome, Click on Continue  then Agree
4.  Select your destination Drive (A green arrow appears on your selection)
5.  Do not hit continue, Select Utilities from top menu... Then Disk Utility
6.  Click on the drive name you previously selected on Left... then click on erase tab
7.  Make sure mac OS Extended (Journaled) is selected and give your drive a name
8.  Select Erase... when that's done, Click on the red dot to close the DIsk Utility
9.  Again select your destination Drive (A green arrow appears on your selection)
10. Then Hit Continue... Don't Hit Install Yet!
11. Click On Customize You'll see some Packages are already selected Leave them selected

Click on:
1.  Arrow next to X86 Patches
2.  Arrow next to Kernel
3.  Select 9.7.0 Kernel Voodoo
4.  Select OHR
5.  Arrow next to Drivers
6.  Arrow next to VGA
7.  Select ati
8.  Arrow next to System
9.  Arrow next to SATA/IDE
10. Select ATI Sata/IDE
11. Select CardBus driver
12. Arrow next to Sound
13. UN Select Voodoo HDA Driver
14. Select Azalia Audio Driver
15. Arrow next to PS/2 mouse/keyboard
16. Select VooDoo PS/2 driver with trackpad plugin
17. Select Laptop Battery

Then Select Done and Install

Wait About 20 Minutes

When its done hit Restart

Had a problem with touchpad locking up so i loaded VoodooPS2Controller-0.98-installer
from here
Didnt delete ACPIPS2Nub like suggested
Then trackpad worked flawlessly

So far this is all i've done to leopard (Sleep doesnt work)
Anyone else have any sugestions feel free to post
